The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC) is set to sack top management staff who have less than 15 months to retire from the national oil company.
Days earlier, the oil business had announced the dismissal and replacement of three of its Executive Vice Presidents (EVPs).
Abdulkabir Ahmed, who formerly oversaw gas, power, and new energy, Adokiye Tombomieye, who oversaw the upstream sector, and Adeyemi Adetunji, who oversaw the downstream sector were all affected by the previous reorganization.
As EVP for gas, power, and new energy, Olalekan Ogunleye took over; Oritsemeyiwa Eyesan was in charge of the company’s upstream operations; and Adedapo Segun was in charge of the downstream.
The NNPC announced in a brief statement Tuesday morning that the new reorganization was in line with its goal to revitalize its staff.
“In our bid to pursue effective organisational renewal to support the delivery of our strategic business objectives, it has become imperative to rejuvenate our workforce.
“Consequently, in addition to the recent exit of three executive vice presidents, other management staff with less than 15 months to statutory retirement will be exiting the company effective 19th September 2023,” the statement said.
The NNPC noted that the move was in line with its commitment to scale up its capabilities through targeted talent management and equal opportunity for all Nigerians.
